Visiting Berwick’s Lower School

Experience Berwick’s Lower School by visiting us, where you’ll gain an understanding for why we believe that these earliest years of a child’s education set the foundation for all future success.

Prospective Students for Grades Pre-K-4

You’ll begin to imagine your child as a part of a community where our youngest learners are thoughtfully exposed to core subjects and to our uniquely crafted Exploration classes, which range from art to physical education and from world languages to in-depth pursuits in science. Visit us to learn about what an intentionally student-centered, whole-child educational experience looks like in action - and why our specific approaches to elementary education are so valuable. Parents and/or guardians are welcome to tour campus and meet with admission staff with or without their child initially, though all students are an important and valued part of the admission experience.

We encourage multiple visits to campus, whether through a combination of Walk-in Wednesdays, Berwick in Action events, your child's class visit day, joining us for Lower School community events, athletic games, and student performances, or your family’s initial tour and interview with us.

Berwick in Action

Come experience a day at Berwick while classes are in session by joining us for Berwick in Action. This event, held monthly from 7:45 - 11 a.m., is for both parents and students Pre-K through grade 12. Engage with our students and teachers, learn about our innovative programming, and get a feel for what our community is like during the school day. Click the button for dates and to RSVP.

Join us for our Play Dates

Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten applicants and parents should plan to attend a Play Date as part of the application process. We believe it is important for your child to experience our classroom, engage with his or her peers, and in turn, for our teachers to observe your child and assess his/her fit with our educational program. While your child attends class, parents have the opportunity to learn more about Berwick Academy and the Lower School curriculum with Lower School Director Joel Hawes.

Pre-K & Kindergarten Spring Play Date: Wednesday, April 17 from 8:45-10:30 a.m.

Please RSVP online here or to Admission at admissions@berwickacademy.org or 207-384-6300

We look forward to welcoming you to campus and sharing our community with you! The best way to experience Berwick is to visit campus and meet our students and faculty.
